Suggestions for FK in two model form


I am using the two model one form method. Everything seems to be working okay, but I can’t seem to get the PK on $maintenance->id into $service->maintenance_events_id as FK. Here’s my controller. Is there something I’m missing?

Thanks :)

    public function actionNewService() {

        $maintenance = new MaintenanceEvents;

        $service = new ServiceSchedules;

        if (isset($_POST['MaintenanceEvents'],$_POST['ServiceSchedules']))


            $service->attributes = $_POST['ServiceSchedules'];

            $maintenance->attributes = $_POST['MaintenanceEvents'];



            $valid=$maintenance->validate() && $valid;






                    $maintenance->id = $service->maintenance_events_id;


                    $this->redirect(array('view', 'id' => $service->id)); 





        $this->render('createNewService', array(

            'maintenance' => $maintenance,

            'service' => $service,



May be your code should look like this piece:


                    $service->maintenance_events_id = $maintenance->id;


I tried that, but that didn’t work either.

I figured this out. In my ServiceSchedules model I removed ‘maintenance_events_id’ as required, and included the following as unique check so there would only be one service record for one maintenance event.


            'message'=>'{attribute} exist on database.'), 

Thanks again for your help :)
